So then what? The crucifixion was just for giggles? Because otherwise Jesus/God could have just snapped His fingers and Bam, all men are saved.
You're not making any sense. Think about what you're saying. I say the sacrifice of Christ was necessary for man's salvation. It happened, and now all men will be saved. You're inventing a difficulty that doesn't exist.
I do too. Those who show themselves worthy to be saved.
So you earn your salvation by merit?
So, I ask again, how does my view give the sacrifice less glory and honor than yours? If anything, it gives it more.
Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
The Greek word translated "everlasting" does not necessarily mean that; in fact, it's quite possible it never
means that. Any interpretation that translates it as such creates problems with 1 Cor 15:22 and 1 Tim 4:10, among others. I have a list of more Scriptural evidence for Universal Salvation here.
I'm not sure what you said there,
What part wasn't clear?
but what did happen was this:
Mark 16:16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Sure. I believe that. I just don't believe the condemnation lasts for eternity.
There are those who choose not to believe.
Beliefs aren't chosen
in the way that actions are chosen unless you're deceiving yourself. Rationally justified beliefs are inescapable; the force of evidence and reason compels you to believe them. Is it your belief that all men have sufficient evidence that only dishonesty would lead them not to believe in Christianity?
OK, this is a little complex. I don't believe all are presently saved; I believe all will be
saved. Some, however, will be saved in the next life. So, fair enough, it's offered to all(at least all who hear about it) now, but I believe only the elect will believe in it. Later, all will be brought to believe(see Philippians 2:11, for one).
